Alberta landmarks in The Last of Us . trailer
The first long trailer of Our Last has revealed the first glimpses of scenes shot by Alberta in the HBO apocalypse video game adaptation.
After watching film crews take over areas of their communities in 2021, the Albertans first saw how their backyards might appear on TV screens on Monday.
The one-minute and 38-second trailer, which was viewed 15 million times on Twitter the next day, tells the story of a smuggler tasked with escorting a teenage girl through the United States after it was destroyed. destroyed by an epidemic.
Here are some frames that appear to have been shot in Alberta:
RECENT CALGARY’S RAMSAY
Nineteen seconds after the trailer, a car leaves what could become one of the quarantine zones of the post-apocalyptic world.
The site’s portal boasts a giant “Welcome” painted sign above the entrance – exactly like the one built in Calgary’s Ramsay community earlier this year.
The series was set for weeks, until just before the city’s world-famous Stampede returns this summer.
Film industry fan and Calgarian David Frid photographed the production crews dismantling it.
ENGINE BRIDGE CAN ADD CODE
A shot of the characters Joel and Ellie crossing what is believed to be the Canmore Engine Bridge used in previous HBO promotional material.
According to HistoricBridges.org, the double-hulled bridge was built in 1891 by the Canadian Pacific Railway to serve a coal mine and is characterized by vertical end piers.
The bridge and its Rocky Mountain backdrop are very well photographed.
Canmore is located 100 kilometers west of Calgary.
104 STREET AND 102 AVENUE, EDMONTON
In October 2021, Our Last manufacturing took over 104 Street in downtown Edmonton. Vehicles appear haphazardly abandoned in the lane, and buildings are taken over by vines.
Possibly the street was turned into downtown Boston, where part of the Our Last is set?
Edmonton’s 104th Street has some brick buildings, like the disaster scene in the trailer.
Besides, Our Last The production team spent time filming in Calgary’s Victoria Park community. 11 Avenue SE also has similar brick buildings.
Either way, fans believe the crumbling skyscraper in the trailer is meant to be the video game’s Goldstone Building.
CALGARY AIRPORT SALES
While officials have never said which production facility closed Calgary’s Airport Tunnel in March, a shot from Our Last The trailer suggests it could have been HBO.
Behind Pedro Pascal’s character lies the expected ruins and debris of an apocalypse. And behind that is a piece of infrastructure that looks similar to the east entrance of the Airport Tunnel, west of 36 Street NE.
WHICH OTHER LOCATIONS WILL BE HIGHLY ATTENTION?
When the series premieres in 2023, more footage from Alberta will be revealed. According to the Internet Movie Database, Our Last Filmed at 13 locations across the province.
In October 2021, the production teams transformed the Alberta Legislature to fit the TV show’s post-apocalyptic setting. Pascal was spotted by onlookers downtown on set.
By the looks of this teaser, filming also took place at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary.
Frid took these pictures on the 4th Avenue overpass and Memorial Drive in Calgary and Canmore.
And viewers should expect Kananaskis’ Wedge pond shots:
Additionally, the High River community Beachwood – which was abandoned in real life after the 2013 floods – is expected to appear.
